After touring the 2019 Atlanta Homes Designer Show House, I’ve had this fantasy of these designers coming to my house and each taking over a room, leaving a breathtaking finished product. Each one has his or her own distinct style but somehow, when they are taken as parts of a whole, these designers’ disparate ideas combine seamlessly into an idyllic home with undeniable flow. But don’t take our word for it. Step inside, stay awhile, peruse until your heart’s content. And then–trust us–do it all over again. You aren’t going to want to miss one gorgeous detail!
(Y’all! The ping pong paddles! We are in love!)
We hope that you have enjoyed this fabulous Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Designer Showhouse as much as we did. What ideas did you get to take back to your home?
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. Seeing you here makes ours!
In other news, my next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!
In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.
Good morning from the road, amazing readers! We hope you are having a great day. We are so excited to be heading to High Point Market this Saturday. I’ll be at the Codarus showroom from 2-4 signing The Secret to Southern Charm, so if you’re at the market, come say hi! Codarus is located in IFHC H220.
Owners and designers extraordinaire Ann Huff and Meg Harrington will be presenting on their favorite entertaining and decor ideas, I’ll be chatting and signing The Secret to Southern Charm and there will be plenty of fun sips and snacks. So come see us!
While Ann and Meg’s Huff Harrington home away from home is filled with so many fabulous things, we think we love their eye for art best of all!
The work they feature is always swoon-worthy and their fine art is a real hallmark of their style and shop.
Ann, Meg and I would all love to see you at gorgeous Huff Harrington April 30!
Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love it when you do!

Happy Halloween, chic readers! Are you in a spooky mood today? Or a little too full from a breakfast of Reese’s Cups and Twix? ( We wouldn’t know anything about that…)
Whether you’re a big fan of Halloween or just wish the whole thing would hurry and be over with already, we have a BIG treat for you today!
What’s better than one of our favorite interior designers creating a fabulous home? Why, more than one of our favorite interior designers creating a fabulous home, of course! The amazing Southeastern Designer Showhouse is just that.
There are so many cool things about Atlanta. (Well, I guess so many hot things… Since it’s “Hotlanta…”) If you’re keeping count, this fabulous designer showhouse is just one more thing to love about Georgia’s happening capital. We’d say it’s the perfect retreat to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you need a little break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays, put your feet up, take a deep breath, and take a tour of this calming and oh-so-chic spot! All that’s missing is a tall glass of sweet tea!
